Here’s another episode from my less than perfect journey to the frugal and simple life. This isn’t the post I originally wrote (that will appear later in the week), but I thought I would tell you about our Valentine’s day evening.
We went to our local pub for ‘pie night’ with some friends, as bit of a treat. It was a lovely evening – not late as we all have work tomorrow – but excellent inexpensive home made food and good company. When we got home, I pulled the lap top out and started writing my latest post.
I needed to download a photo and OH went upstairs to look for the gadget thing which lets me download the photos. I suddenly heard a shout and ran upstairs thinking OH had fallen over or off something. In fact, he’d seen a mouse in his office and it had practically run over his foot.
I’m not sure what to do about the mouse – obviously living in the country means that we have occasionally to deal with unwelcome visitors. I feel a bit squeamish about setting traps, but I don’t really fancy the idea of them trotting around upstairs. I know just about everyone on Frugal Hill has occasionally had mice, but I would like to evict this one as soon as I can.
Have you ever had mice? How did you persuade them to leave?
Until next time, Tawney x
